We are Region would support in Ricote the election of a PSOE mayor as long as this is number two on the list since the current number one and spokesperson for the socialist group in the town hall has a firm court ruling against him for threats, lacking therefore of the exemplarity necessary for the position.The deep political crisis that the City Council of Ricote is going through after it was made public that the current Mayor, Rafael Guillamón (PP), was ineligible at the time of the constitution of the Corporation, requires, according to Somos Región, "an exit agreed "that allows" to give stability to the municipality.Councilor María Victoria Martínez Lajarín affirms that the attitude of contempt for the mayor's legality is "seriously damaging to the institution; it goes against the values ??that I have always defended," she clarified.
In this sense, the regional councilor is in favor of supporting "the candidacy of a socialist councilor as Mayor" and considers that, at this moment, the ideal person capable of raising the necessary consensus to unblock this situation is Rubén Carrasco Miñano, who he was number 2 on the PSOE list in the last elections.Martínez Lajarín also wanted to make public that "he will not demand from the socialist candidate that Somos Región be part of the new Government Team", a gesture of "generosity" that he considers "should facilitate negotiation."Finally, Somos Región once again emphasizes that the current Socialist Spokesperson cannot be mayor because "she has a firm court ruling against her for threats" and is far from having the "necessary exemplarity" that a first mayor should have.
However, the party did not assess whether or not Aroca could continue as a member of the government.
"It is a decision that would correspond to the new Mayor," they point out.
